Lice are parasites that require a human host to survive. Head lice cannot live on pets and they spread most commonly through head-to-head contact. Children are the most susceptible to getting head lice because of how they interact with their peers. It is common to see kids playing, learning, and exploring closely together and they can often be seen with their heads pressed together. Lice do not fly or jump, but they do quickly crawl.
Lice have three stages in their life cycles. A louse egg is called a nit. It can be found at the base of a hair shaft near the scalp. They can be hard to see because they are tiny (about the size of a knot in a piece of thread). They are often yellow or white and can be easily mistaken for dandruff, hairspray, or scabs. A young louse is called a nymph. A nymph looks like a smaller version of an adult louse. An adult louse is about the size of a sesame seed and is tan or gray in color. Female lice are larger than male lice. Lice require a human host to survive. They are parasites that require blood for nourishment. If they are not on a human host, they die within 24 hours.
Our technicians are highly trained and educated. They provide gentle treatments that have a striking 99% success rate for eradicating head lice in just one visit to your home! We also provide a satisfaction promise! If head lice return within 30 days of the initial treatment, we will return to your home to perform another service and the first hour will be free*.
Lice Removal Denver performs thorough ‘wet checks’ for head lice in our screenings. A ‘wet check’ is the gold standard when it comes to detecting head lice. We screen each member of the home for head lice, because chances are that if one person has head lice, others do too. It isn’t uncommon for parents to snuggle up to their children, and because of how lice spread it’s easy for them to affect several members of the family. Not everyone displays the common itchy scalp symptom of having head lice, and early detection makes eliminating head lice much easier. We will also screen any outside caregivers or visitors that frequent your home.
Our treatments are made from natural oils and enzymes that will not harm you or your loved ones. We never use harsh or dangerous chemicals for the treatment of head lice! Most over-the-counter remedies are full of toxic pesticides that can have adverse effects and react poorly to sensitive skin. Our treatments help to kill and detach head lice from the hair. While performing screenings and treatments, our technician will show you as parents or caregivers exactly what to look for when it comes to head lice. This way you know what to look for in the future.
We use fine toothed metal lice combs to manually remove nits, nymphs, and adult lice from the hair. Metal combs are highly preferred to plastic combs because of their quality and strength. Plastic combs just don’t cut it. After the removal process is complete, our technician will wash and dry the hair. As a follow up the technician will do another screening of treated hair. This strand-by-strand check allows the technician to remove any lingering nits from the hair.
Lice Removal Denver understands that there is a lot of information about head lice out there. Most of this information is not correct, though sometimes it is possible to find accurate information on the web. We’ll take the hassle out of having to dig through multiple online resources to find true information on head lice. Our technician will take the time to educate your family about head lice while performing treatments. Everything you need to know about head lice, how and what to clean in your home, and prevention information are provided to all of the individuals and families we serve. We will give you all of the tools you need to be lice free as quickly and as easily as possible. We hope this education also makes it possible for you to never have to deal with a lice infestation again in the future!
